Upcoming Offering – Scott Wines Shiraz/Sangiovese 2010

Sam Scott has been able to capture something quite difficult, when producing red wine in Australia.  He has created a successful food wine!  This wine juxtaposes the two seemingly odd bedfellows of Shiraz and Sangiovese.  The Shiraz provides the softness and aromatic lift while the Sangiovese adds the structure and savoury complexity.  This wines shows notes of cocoa, black olives, plums and spice with a slightly resinous complexity.  The palate is medium to full bodied with medium grained tannins and very little noticeable oak influence.  Should have capacity to age nicely.  Drink 2013-2020. 4 ½ stars.
